Archbishopric of Ohrid to mark 1000th anniversary on May 27

Ohrid, 14 May 2018 (MIA) - Activities marking the 1000th anniversary of the Archbishopric of Ohrid will begin on May 27 in Ohrid with a formal ceremony, attended by members of the Holy Synod of the Macedonian Orthodox Church - Archbishopric of Ohrid, led by H.H. Stefan, and top state officials.

Darjan Sotirovski, head of the commission for relations with religious communities and groups, said the event marked a remarkable jubilee - one millennium since the establishment of 'an indispensable church and spiritual organization uniting people in times of turmoil throughout history.'

"The central event will take place on May 27 in the church St. Sofia in Ohrid that involves a formal academy, held under the auspices of the President of Macedonia, with addresses by top church and state officials," Sotirovski told a press conference Monday in Ohrid.

The Macedonian Orthodox Church is the main organizer of the ceremony with support provided by local authorities.

"The Municipality of Ohrid will take part in all events marking this once-in-a-lifetime jubilee. Activities will kick off on the Day of Sts. Cyril and Methodious, May 24, with a concert given by Macedonian musician Goran Trajkovski and underground band Mizar," Ohrid Mayor Jovan Stojanovski said.

Various events, including gatherings of scholars, book promotions, cultural activities, artistic and educational events, will take place from late May till the end of the year. ba/17:55
